    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    After managing to mount EFI in safe mode, I used the latest ZIP, as described above, and copied it over to EFI partition, and managed to (properly) updated the Clover, but to no avail. In the end I botched it so badly that it wouldn't even boot in safe mode So, I'll have to reinstall from scratch, using my existing (High SIerra) USB installer (good thing that I saved it.... ) Thanks for your help!

    Tluck, sorry for being dense, but I think I found some instructions on how to mount EFI partition in safe mode elsewhere, so I might try to do it.... Anyway, when (and if) I manage to do that, where do I find the updated kexts? And which of those should I replace (and where - on the EFI partition, under EFI/Clover/kexts ? - or under System/Library/Extensions ?) So, I might start with the updated HD3000 kext(s) - where do I find those? Again, sorry if I'm being dense - that's because I am a noob (at least in using Clover and Hackintoshes in general...)

    Unfortunately, this won't work. When I try the above command, I get: "/System/Library/Extensions/msdosfs.kext failed to load - operation/kext not allowed at current boot level"

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Hi all, Hope someone can help me. I have a T420 with the following specs: Lenovo T420 i5-2520M, 2.5GHz BIOS: 1.46 83ET76WW (whitelist removed) 8GB RAM wifi card: Dell DW1510 Intel HD 3000 LCD display (TFT): 1366x768 I had a nicely working High Sierra install (10.13.5), with everything working as it should (incl. wifi - Dell DW1510, and the external monitor, etc.) In short, I was quite happy with it. However, I had to do an upgrade to 10.13.6 due to some apps which require this upgrade. I upgraded right from booted system, from the DMG image, and the upgrade had some glitches - I had to manually rebot a stuck install, but then it caught up and finished OK. In short, I upgraded from 10.13.5 to 10.13.6, but now I can't boot normally, except when I select safe mode in Clover. - when I finally managed to boot (in safe mode), I also updated Clover to (but I don't think that matters here...). Attached is the screenshot of the verbose boot - this is where it gets stuck. Also, my Clover boot options (with "-verbose" selected). If I start it in safe mode, it starts and works seemingly OK (obviously, without being able to mount EFI partition in Clover..., external monitor doesn't work, etc....) So, is there anything I can do to make it boot normally? Also, - how? - since I can't mount EFI partition when in safe mode? Although, this is a dual boot laptop, with Xubuntu installed, so I can use the installed Xubuntu install, or I could boot from a bootable (x)ubuntu install, whatever... I have basic Linux skills, so I guess that's an option.... Thanks in advance for any help! Denis
